HAGLEY & DISTRICT L.C.C. WELSH 12 HOUR TRIAL (June 23rd)
Nineteen starters left the Cross Keys Garage. Hagley. from 10.45 on Saturday evening, June 23rd, to participate in the Welsh 12-hour trial organised by the Hagley Club.
The route was set via Bewdley, Leominster and Rhayader, to the site of the first driving test in the Elan valley. This consisted of a timed climb of a hill some 400 yards long, having in its length two fairly acute hairpin bends, which proved somewhat deceptive in the light of headlamps. C. E. Smith, later to retire with a blown gasket, came to the top in his Dellow with steam up, while several re-runs were necessary owing to some trouble with the timing apparatus.
On the Stop and Re-start test, Joy Cooke (Ford 1,172 saloon) was a little too eager to get away and recorded a failure.
At Driving Test A, between Llandovery and Llandulas, Rhodes, in his 1,172 special, clocked a very line 20 seconds, in spite of the fact that he was devoid of water pump and dynamo, these having decided to disintegrate just prior to the start.
So to the Eppynt Ranges, where Tests B and C, both variations on the forward-reverse-forward-reverse theme, were sited.
A. L. Davies, in the 1 ½-litre M.G. saloon, arrived with two defunct rear springs and a battered battery, results of a portion of the route marked “Rough Lane.” He couldn’t have agreed more!
The final test was a Double Stop and Go, laid on a winding hill at Painscastle. Here Rhodes again made f.t.d. with a creditable 13.8 sec., with P.J. Johnson, H.R.G., a good runner-up with 16.2 sec. Hamilton, in the 1,355 T-type M.G., came quite a good way in a rearward direction, a look of agony on the driver’s face.
The trial finished at the New Inn, Pentbridge, where lunch was arranged.
